When and where did the production of All of Us Are Dead take place?

It’s unclear when production began, but filming was ongoing during August but was then postponed due to the COVID19 pandemic.

At the time of writing, we’d expect filming to have concluded on the series.

Can we expect to see multiple seasons of All Of Us Are Dead?

Whether or not All Of Us Are Dead receives more than one season entirely depends on the show’s popularity. K-Dramas are extremely popular right now and zombies are timeless, so we don’t envision that the series will struggle for viewers.

One thing to take into consideration is the source material. We’re not expecting the series to cover the webtoon panel for panel, but there are still 130 chapters for the writers to source material from. With that much story available to them, we’d fully expect to see of least two seasons of All Of Us Are Dead.
